Chiara Gambuzza Roger in Italy we love you...i ask u 2 question:1. What is the thing that you love very much of Italy and If u had to choose a player(male) and a player(female) to play a mixed doubles who would you choose?? Thank u From italy ?

Chiara Gambuzza I love being in Rome because of all the history and the monuments. But then the food... Food and fashion, are one of the many things I like about Italy.

-----------------------------------------------------------

Jean Lean Hi Roger! : ) thank you for this opportunity; how do you find keeping your life balanced and not focusing too much on tennis? And how has that balance changed as you've gotten older?

Jean Lean I think I've always been good at being able to having distance from Tennis when I'm on vacation. I think it is one of my strengths- when I leave the ground of a tennis court, and I come home, I can disconnect a bit from tennis.

-----------------------------------------------------------

Fiona Wong Hello Roger! You are my hero, my idol and my reason for life. I want you to keep playing Tennis for as long as it makes you happy. Your fans love you, and I will support you no matter what happen.

My QUESTION for you is what music do you listen to? I have always wondered that. I am sure you have a fantastic taste in music and I would love for you to share it with us!

I am going to the Australian Open next month and it is my dream to meet you there. I hope it will come true. Best wishes, I love you!

Fiona Wong I grew up with with Dance music, then moved to Hard Rock- AC/DC and Lenny Kravitz. I listen to more general pop music too, and at the moment I am listening now to my friend Gavin Rossdale cd from Bush. I hope to see you in Australia!

-----------------------------------------------------------

Tamuna Kamladze Hi Roger! I was wondering Is there something you have learned in tennis that you use off court in everyday life? Greetings from Georgia! : )

@kamuna from Tennis I learned to love what you do, and do what you love

-----------------------------------------------------------

Michal Kupper Hi Rog, I would like to ask you one question. Do you wish so that your twins will play tennis in the future as you do? Greetings from Slovakia!

Michal Kupper Good question! I will support them to follow whatever passions they have.

-----------------------------------------------------------

Neelay Purohit Hey Roger! How much of an impact has your foundation had on your life?

Neelay Purohit thanks for asking about the Foundation. I feel very fortunate to be able to help others. I hope I can make much more in the future to raise awareness and raise money for others less fortunate. It has left a great impact on me to help others.

-----------------------------------------------------------

Ellie Xenophontos ROG!! which is ur fave football team overall??

@Ellie My favorite football team is FC Basel.

-----------------------------------------------------------

Someone asked what my goals are after tennis. After tennis I want to be involved in the sport in some shape or form. I hope that I can dedicate more time in the Roger Federer Foundation. Spend a lot of time with my family.

-----------------------------------------------------------

Rintu Mathunni Hi roger..who is your favourite athlete outside tennis.also do u watch movies

@Rintu I used to idolize Michael Jordan. Nowadays I admire Valentino Rossi-I love what he's done already in his sport

-----------------------------------------------------------

@ All my cricket-loving fans. I love cricket. My mom is South African, and my previous Australian coaches thought me the rules. I had the pleasure to meet Sachin Tendulkar in Wimbledon last year too!

-----------------------------------------------------------

Akash Daswaney Hey Rog! : )
How do you effectively recycle your sportswear?

@Akash Daswaney I change my outfit about 10-12 times a year. I love being part of the process with Nike of giving input to the designers. I hope you like it!

-----------------------------------------------------------

Marco Yeung Roger , With most top players suffering from injuries, i am curious of your secrets in keeping an almost injury-free career ???

Marco Yeung My secret to an injury-free career is managing my schedule. I balance the many things in my life very well. Hard work and enough rest is very important too.

-----------------------------------------------------------

Gabriel Banasiak Hey Roger!
I just wanted to ask u, how do u keep so calm and always so relaxed on the tennis court? :)

@Gabriel Banasiak When things aren't going my way I try to see the big picture. Hold my ground. I prove myself that I can do it. It is all part of being well prepared, so that you don't panic in a situation like this.

-----------------------------------------------------------

Tinnie Rakotomalala Hey! : ) I hope you're fine! My question is: What's your best memory of this season?

@Tinnie Rakotomalala. Thanks for your question! I had a wonderful end of the season by winning 17 matches in a row. I had a great season- sure I had some tough losses but I found a way to bounce back and now be in a good position for 2012. I am very excited to be in the gym and on the tennis court again- especially after a nice vacation.
